vcite templates do not support archive-url/archive-date. As such they are invisible in the output and to the bot.

@Cyberpower678 - I don't understand the close. Evidently the bot did something wrong in the diff adding archiveurl/archivedate to templates it should not be editing. Can you make sure the bot avoids vcite web/book/journal? Adding garbage data to templates creates problems later on for others to clean up.

How did it do something wrong? The existing parameters do nothing to the templates. IABot added archive URLs using the correct acknowledged parameters so they would render. Bad parameters are ignored by IABot. On Vcite, archive-url and archive-date are not supported. Only archiveurl and archivedate are.

I see, sorry I misunderstood. Reclosing nothing to see here :)
